– Where to find my dress for my civil wedding in Montreal ? –

You are getting married in France and you are going to say YES at the town hall ? (In France, for the marriage to be recognized and valid, it must be done beforehand at the town hall). You wish to have a different dress for your civil wedding ? The short wedding dress is a great option !

First of all, here’s what you need to know: very often brides-to-be have only one dress. One and only one dress for the wedding at the town hall and for the ceremony (religious or lay) because usually the two celebrations follow each other in the same day.

In this case, choosing a different dress for the civil wedding is more than appropriate if it takes place on a different day. In addition, if the couple do not wish to discover each other before the big ceremony, this can also be an important and symbolic choice for the bride and groom.

Having two different dresses, one for the civil wedding and another one for the ceremony is not essential: it’s a choice !

Our little short dresses are just perfect for your civil wedding ! We are lucky to have among our many dresses, short wedding dresses from the French designer L’Amusée. Really beautiful little nuggets that we invite you to come and try on !




Going halfway up the thigh, the minis are designed for women who are assertive and want to show off their assets on their wedding day. To be avoided however for the religious ceremony. In places of worship, it is customary to cover oneself a minimum out of respect. This style of dress is to be reserved for secular or outdoor ceremonies.


This time, the fabric stops at the knee to show just a little bit for a wiser version. Also called “skater dresses”, the movement created by the volume at the level of the skirt gives it a lot of charm. To counterbalance the sexy side, the long sleeves are also a good way: we show the beautiful legs, but we cover a little bit the arms.


And finally, the even wiser version with a retro touch. The length is between the knees and mid-calf (midi dress). A good way to feel both free to move on the D-day in your outfit while staying in a wedding vibe.

Whether it’s pumps, open shoes, derbies or even sneakers, anything goes! It is important to know that heels always slim the silhouette and give a pretty posture to the bride while highlighting her legs. If you opt for heeled shoes, you will have to adapt the heel size according to your ability to walk in heels and your comfort. Also, remember to “make” your shoes before the big day!
